Guitar/Music Theory Tutor of 15 Years Experience. Based In Brighton & Peacehaven

To get the most out of our time together you must first ask yourself - What do you want to achieve?

Find the perfect guitar instructor!

Before choosing your guitar, you first must ask yourself what your favourite music style is. A steel-string guitar, for example, will be more adapted to folk music, while an electric guitar will be better for jamming to classic rock hits. Different styles also apply to the ukulele and to the acoustic guitar. Once you’ve decided which style to pursue, and you’ve purchased a guitar and a guitar pick, it’ll be time to do the heavy lifting: learning music theory and taking beginner guitar lessons! Pop rock, metal, jazz, folk, blues… Make sure you communicate your preferred music style to the instructor you’ve chosen via Superprof. The goal of our website is to offer guitar lessons for everyone!

Learning to play the guitar with a personal instructor, rather than sloppily learning online!

Thanks to Youtube, the comeback of vinyl records and the incredible access we have to music, our musical culture is the greatest it’s ever been. Today, teenagers and young adults can become huge fans of Led Zeppelin, the Doors and Jimmy Hendrix, even if they’re now dead or much less active than they were years ago. In short, the possibilities are endless if you want to learn about the history of modern music and one of its star instruments, the guitar. We’re living in an amazing musical era! And, in the face of all of this enthusiasm, maybe it’s time to go from being a simple guitar fan to becoming a true guitarist, don’t you think? Do you also dream of jamming to guitar solos, playing arpeggios or your own musical creations? The next step for you, then, is signing up for guitar lessons! As you probably already know, the guitar is, by and large, a fairly demanding instrument. While some beginners advance more quickly than others, there are a lot of things to learn: how to coordinate both hands, music theory, how to read sheet music, obtaining a sense of rhythm, how to find a melody… To do this, some people choose to take online courses. “Online music lessons,” “Music online,” “Guitar online,” “Online guitar lessons” and “learn to play the guitar online” are popular searches that catch the eye and spark curiosity. But this learning method is far from being the most suitable option to learn the guitar. The best for a beginner guitarist is to either go to a music school to be properly trained alongside other musicians or to find a personal instructor. Ideally, a professional with a music degree from a national conservatoire, who will be able to teach you music theory and the history of music, and who will know how to slowly introduce you to reading sheet music and guitar tabs. However, you can also opt to train with a self-taught musician. The main goal is that you learn how to play the guitar, understand music theory, learn to read sheet music and discover the beauty and richness of this instrument: chords, arpeggios, guitar tabs, electric guitars, acoustic guitars, tuners, different guitar brands (Gibson, Fender Strarocaster, Ibanez), a complete musical training, discovery of rock, blues, jazz manouche, the genius of Jimmy Hendrix, solo improvisation, steel-string guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar…

The advantages of having a personal guitar instructor at home…

All of this, and much more, can be learned as a beginner! But, of course, you have to be ready to work at it. Because the guitar, even if you’re pretty coordinated and can manage the different hand movements, or if you have a good sense of rhythm, requires some work. Lots of work, really. Passion, even! For example, you shouldn’t wait until your guitar lesson to practice, but rather try to dedicate a couple of hours a day to strumming those strings. When you start learning to play music, you’ll see that you can make quick progress. But, the best way to get there is to practice a little bit every day. You’ll be able to reproduce songs from your favourite artists, as long as you remember the keyword: practice. You know what they say: practice makes perfect. There’s no way around it!

Music theory or guitar tabs?

When it comes to music theory and learning how to read sheet music or guitar tabs, you can follow your guitar instructor’s lead. There are many advantages to taking private guitar lessons at home, even if music school lovers may disagree. Thanks to private lessons, beginners can benefit from having a guitar instructor all for themselves. The entire lesson will be dedicated to you, and your instructor will be entirely available to work on your favourite musical styles and to focus on your specific trouble areas.

Playing the guitar: what style to choose

As we mentioned above, the history of modern music has been heavily influenced by the guitar. Today, people worship guitarists like gods and certain bands like absolute legends (Bob Marley, Eric Clapton, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Rolling Stones, ACDC, Santana, and so many others). But, to try to emulate all of these idols that you certainly already know and rock to their most famous songs (No Woman No Cry, Redemption Song, Layla, Knocking on Heaven’s Door, Californication, Nothing Else Matters, Stairway to Heaven, Smoke on the Water, Feels like Teen Spirit, Sympathy for the Devil, etc.), you’ll have to take many guitar lessons and immerse yourself in music theory, to learn how to play arpeggios, bar chords, etc. In short, follow a complete training programme. Because playing the guitar also means learning about different musical styles and concepts: folk, acoustic, blues, rock, trying out the bass, the pentatonic scale, tapping, left-handed guitars, hard rock, contemporary music, vintage songs, playing pull-offs and hammer-ons, legato, accompanying your guitar-playing with your voice, gypsy jazz, major and minor scales, halftone, improvisation, rhythm, hooking up an amp, vibrato, jazz, pop, playing fingerstyle guitar, reading guitar tabs, bossa nova, funk, soul, flamenco pieces, metal, reggae, etc.

Find a guitar instructor near you

Guitar lessons are the most requested by our students on Superprof when it comes to music classes. This isn’t entirely surprising, though, given that the guitar is a string instrument that speaks to a great number of people. Aspiring guitarists will thus be happy to know that a large number of guitar instructors are waiting for you all over the United Kingdom! Over 3,000 on Superprof, to be exact. Also, you should probably like to know that a guitar lesson costs much less, on average than learning to play another instrument (like the piano, for example), with an average cost of £25 an hour. To rock out to the guitar solos you’ve always dreamed of playing, whether it’s locked in your bedroom, in front of family and friends, or before an audience, stop looking for “guitar lessons,” “choosing a guitar,” “how to learn to play the guitar,” “electric guitar lessons,” “beginner guitar lessons,” “free guitar lessons” and other generic online searches. What you’re looking for are the rock-star tutors we have at Superprof.

How to go even further with your guitar lessons

Are you looking to start taking guitar lessons to learn how to play a six-string guitar with a professional guitarist? Or maybe you’re looking for a personal instructor to better acquaint yourself with stringed instruments in general? Someone gave you an electric guitar as a birthday gift, and now you want to learn how to play your new instrument? To play like Eric Clapton, acquire Jimmy Hendrix’s sense of touch and mimic the riffs performed by Keith Richards, Superprof can propose guitar instructors for all types of musical styles (flamenco, classical, country, traditional Latin or Celtic, etc.) and for all types of guitars (classical, acoustic, flamenco, electric, electro-acoustic, etc.). Our selection of private instructors for bass guitar will allow you to discover this other special stringed instrument. The study of music theory will also be a huge plus in expanding your musical culture.
